July 8-11| Pilates Master Program & BASI workshops with Rael Isacowitz

Rael Isacowitz in Greece for 2 great events!

1. Three Workshops, July 8

MASTER MAT CLASS 8:30-10AM 

This Master Mat Class exemplifies the BASI Pilates approach to the Pilates mat work. The class will magnify the concept of flow, and although precision and form are always important in the execution of Pilates only general cues will be offered as opposed to individual corrections. This class will be athletic, challenging and fun!

TRAINING THE AMATEUR ATHLETE 10:30am-1pm

Professional athletic training using Pilates has had a good deal of attention in recent years, though, in terms of numbers, professionals are probably a very small part of any studio´s clientele. The non-professional athlete (often refered to as the ´weekend warrior´) is probably present in far greater numbers and is, in many ways, more challenging to work with. Pilates may be the only conditioning that the non-professional does, outside of the athletic activity itself, which means that the training needs to be focused and thorough. The goals of Pilates for amateur athletes are to both raise their level of performance and prevent potential injuries. The workshop addresses choice of exercises for the amateur athlete and compiling an appropriate Pilates program.

THE LOWER BACK ENIGMA 2-4:30pm

With over 80% of the US population suffering from Non-specific Lower Back Pain (NSLBP) at least once in their lives this is clearly an area of great concern. Pilates professionals have long believed that the part of the body they commonly refer to as the ´powerhouse´ has a significant contribution to make in the care and prevention of NSLBP, and that belief has been substantiated by some research. This workshop highlights the benefits of Pilates in treating NSLBP and proposes a multi-level approach in dealing with the condition. Pilates is uniquely successful in treating NSLBP.

And for the first time in Greece, first time outside of the United States…

2. THE MASTER PROGRAM, July 9-11 

Saturday – Monday: 9am-4pm

This course, the second part of the Ultimate Pilates program, is Rael´s voyage of discovery to the extremes of the Method, together with the most accomplished of his colleagues and students. The Master Program introduces a level of the repertoire that Rael has never taught previously. Attention is given to teaching, cueing and methodology, but the main thrust is the in-depth exploration of master-level exercises that have seldom been part of any teacher-training curriculum. In order to qualify for the Master Program a student must have completed the Mentor Program.

As a Pilates teacher and practitioner, stay on the cutting edge of Pilates! Update your training. Deepen your knowledge. Be one of the best Pilates teachers worldwide…
